Star Trek Online : Cryptic listen to the fans (a little bit)

A while ago, I don’t remember when it was, Cryptic post a poll on the sto forums about what would like the fans to be the base for the new content.

The majority votes Voyager.

As a result, Cryptic has annoouced recently the new expansion of the game : Delta Rising

This is the trailer of Delta Rising :

I’m playing sto since 2012. I liked to meet Bones, Scotty in some episodes where we were sent into the past, but it was just their characters, without voice acting. Only Leonard Nimoy gave his voice ingame.

Then Cryptic started to do what all Star Trek fans wanted.

Michael Dorn plays Ambassador Worf  and it was awesome to be able to fight alongisde him.

They input also Denise Crosby in a special episode where she was playing Tasha Yar again.

Some months ago it’s Tim Russ that appears playing Admiral Tuvok and in the long episode (close to 1 hour of playing time) we were fighting alongside him. He was also present in another episode of previous season.

But now Cryptic announced this :

Do you recognize them ? Tim Russ as Admiral Tuvok, Jeri Ryan as Seven of Nine, Ethan Philips as Neelix and Robert Picardo (The Doctor) will join Garrett Wang (Harry Kim). They are coming to the game.

I don’t like everything that cryptic & Pwe have done in the past, several modifications were not at all good for the hard core and long timer base of players, but introducing the Romulans as a playable races and bringing back some of the characters we liked to watch is good. I wish cryptic to listen a bit more to players to have more Klingons side content and to not make the game too easy. We also like when it’s difficult.

 

I always liked the Star Trek universe and I’ll also like using the game to thanks a lot Gene Roddenberry for his genious vision.

Have fun and play.
